On any typical given day, the bus service at CSR is great!

I totally agree with the fluke thing!! We always had breakfast at pepper market, then caught the bus at stop 1......which us a huge problem to start with since its the last stop!!! The guy working the bus stop area worked really hard to fix the AK problem!!

We never had more than a 10 min wait when leaving parks to go back!!! The only packed bus problems we had were first thing in the morning...and that happens everywhere!!!

Well, waiting over an hour for a bus to even stop at the bus stop is extreme and ridiculous. Also, the front desk and drivers were all aware of it for quite awhile before a bus arrived. Basically all of us at the stop got to the park when EVERYONE could so it took away the early magic hour. It happened another night too just not as extreme for DTD.

That is definitely something that should not have happened!!!

What I can't understand is Why All the Waterpark busses???? Everyone at the bus stop just shook their heads when one came by! It was bus overload

One more thing I forgot to mention was the Pepper Market. The food was great: breakfast and dinner.

We always had a fantastic waitress!!! They were so attentive, and we never felt rushed!

The Beef Burrito was so good (or I was just starving) that I wish I could have one right now!!

We were a party of 10 and I didn't see anyone leave anything on their plates

We love the Pepper Market. Awesome value on ddp. The manager--Ken, I think--is so funny and nice. I hope we get to chat with him when we return.

Oh boy, we had the opposite experience last time we stayed at CSR; the bus service was great. It was one of the reason we rebooked at CSR. We had terrible wait times for the bus at the the deluxe resorts, and the values were a nightmare.There seems to be many inconsistencies with Disney's transportation system these days. Probably long overdue for a major overhaul.

Yes, they were very friendly!!!

I'm glad that we finally stayed at CSR, and although it is beautiful, I can't say that we will stay there again...............it truly is HUGE!!!

I read that over and over, but didn't really understand how big it was until we decided to try and find our room (that took a while), then tried to walk from Casitas 2 to the main pool That was quite a walk!!!

So we only spent one afternoon at the pool.

Even if we would have gotten a room near the pool, we would have been so far from the food court it wouldn't have helped.

So I've decided that if FD is announced for our November trip that I'm going to upgrade to preferred Casitas, mainly because I'm not one who likes to walk onto a full bus with a 6 year old, and if we don't get FD then I'm going to request 8a ( I DO NOT want a parking lot view! I want to be able to walk out my door and see something pretty...NOT a bunch of cars...lol. Then again...maybe if FD I'll request 8b...such a decision
I'm thinking we'll go more for Casitas near a quiet pool..like I said...mainly for the bus pickup Such decisions..

Going in Sept

I'm just joining this thread after reading all the posts. I am staying with my children 12, 10 & 8 at CSR in September 15-23. We are in a preferred room as part of our package. I think I'm more excited then the kids but we'll see as we get closer. We are driving down from PA and I'm not sure if we will be using our car or WDW for transportation. I'm very excited!

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Business Class Questions

I just reserved a Business Class room for our late October stay. I have read what I can find about these rooms using the thread search but i still have lots of questions for someone who has been there.

When I reserved the only option for BC rooms was standard view and king room....can I request a lake view room or are they in another category that was just not available for my dates?

I read where the BC rooms are in building 9B. Is the lounge in that building as well? If so what floor?

I read that they have light breakfast and evening snacks with beer, wine and sangria. Can anyone fill me in on what the "light breakfast" and evening snack offerings are like?

Do the rooms have any different amenities than the regular CS rooms?

Thanks in advance for the help.
